This year open enrollment is smooth sailing. (kayak on peaceful water)

Open Enrollment for 2022 is now closed.


Endowed benefits-eligible employees will receive an email dated October 26 summarizing important dates and announcements for this year's open enrollment. 

  • Read this year's Open Enrollment summary email carefully for important updates.
  • If you have no changes to make in your coverage, and don't want an FSA (flexible spending account) for 2022 -- you don't need to do anything! Your enrollments will stay the same as last year.
  • If you're enrolling for the first time or want to make changes, consider the questions below before you access Workday to make your elections.  
  • Use the Workday Decision Enrollment Guide worksheets and step-by-step instructions to make enrollment in Workday easy!
